World number 1, Rafael Nadal has won the 2018 French Open after beating Austrian and world number 8, Dominic Thiem in 3 straight sets.
The Spaniard and King of Clay defeated Thiem 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 in the game that lasted two hours and 42 minutes to seize his trophy for an unfathomable 11th time in the clay surface.
The Spaniard started the game by winning the first 2 games of the first set before Thiem came back to level on 3s extending the set to 67 minutes. However, Nadal, as usual, saves his top level for championship occasions like these, and Sunday’s affair on Court Philippe Chatrier was just a display of that same attitude.
With this win, Nadal 32, becomes the first man or woman to win 11 Grand Slam titles in a single competition and with a total Grand Slam titles of 17, he’s now 3 titles short of Roger Federer who has a record 20 grand slam titles
